Windbreak

We need to plant a privacy/windbreak on our ranch. The windbreak will be adjacent to an irrigation canal ditch which also brings with it, high saline soil. Please let me know what we can plant that will be fast growing, saline tolerant and also wind tolerant.

    First let me say that trees that grow quickly tend to have weak wood and are not terribly long lived. Also, do you want evergreen? I would think so considering your location.

    I would suggest that you post this question with your excellent description at a WONDERFUL site called The Garden Web. They have forums on just about any topic and region that you could think of. Here is a link to the main forums page.

    Good luck,
